“Charity begins at home, but should not end there”, Our youth coming forward to take up the challenge of uplifting each other is remarkable.
The main objectives of the SAHANA (SLWA) Youth Club are to embed the values of social responsibilities among our young leaders with a Sri Lankan identity to respect diversity among us.
The Core Objectives of establishing the SAHANA Youth Club (SYC) by the involvement of the next generation of young adult Sri Lankans in social services is;
To Inculcate empathy, a passion to share and give back to the society and related positive values on social responsibilities among our young leaders.
Inspire to perform voluntary work & to be involved in community services projects, whilst promoting the passion among their colleagues.
To Identify talented young leaders and improve their innate traits with guidance and life skills to reach their best.
Engage our youth and provide hands on experience on real life scenarios by including them in age specific operational initiatives and appointing then as project members to support learning and grooming with guidance from Sahana Committees on varied initiatives.
Develop the next generation of leaders for SLWA by appointing them as Ambassadors of SLWA to support delivering our vision sustainably.
